Well hopefully better late than never, here is the report and photos from our trip to Ankeny! Unfortunately both time and the weather were against us, but we both had a great time driving around town for a couple of hours in the afternoon taking pictures. We ended up with 13 usable shots from about 150 taken, and these have now been uploaded to Wikimedia Commons . In turn, 5 have been added to the Ankeny article on Wikipedia . Below are a couple of my favourites. Look for some hints on our next destination later in the week!

Has it really been this long since we've posted? Where did the summer go? Apologies to our loyal readers! The fourth stop on our U.S. Route 30 tour was the city of Lowden, Iowa! Incorporated in 1869 and yet another city of around 800 residents, Lowden showed evidence of a prosperous past and present with an impressive & well kept City Hall (built in 1902), a restored train depot, and even a disc golf course! 4 shots were uploaded to Wikmedia Commons, with two added to the updated article on Wikipedia.

Our second stop along U.S. Route 30 was the city of Calamus, Iowa! With a population of around 400 (as of 2000), we were unfortunate to arrive just after the end of their weekend summer festival! 5 shots were uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, with two added to the updated article on WIkipedia.
